Lightning McQueen: "Where am I?"
Tow Mater: "Where are you? Shoot! You're in Radiator Springs. The cutest little town in Carburetor County."
~ From Pixar's Cars, 2006
Cars is one of my most favorite Pixar movies; it juggles for the top spot with Brave and Up, Monsters Inc. and Ratatouille falling close behind. It's also one of the most bashed Pixar films as well with only a 75% rating from rotten tomatoes.

This expansion of California Adventure Disneyland opened last June, and I was biting at the bit to go! I first learned about Radiator Springs being brought to life in the D23 Summer 2009 issue and was ecstatic. The whole idea of it was so incredibly cool.

It was a lot of fun walking through Radiator Springs, seeing it all decked out for the Christmas season. Pure awesome, and it got me in an early Christmas spirit.
